This week, Howard Stern, the self-proclaimed King of All Media, announced that he'll soon be leaving Infinity Broadcasting. In fact, he'll be leaving terrestrial broadcasting altogether and taking his act to Sirius Satellite Radio, where the FCC can't touch him. Sirius is betting $100 million a year on the deal in hopes that legions of listeners will follow Stern to pay radio. Bob discusses the deal with Scott McKenzie, editor in chief of Billboard's Radio Monitor.
